This song probably create the best image in my head than any others. I can see a completely wooden cellar (wooden floor, wooden ceiling, benches, etc) with no paint and loads of pots & pans all over the place but it comes into my head very cartoon like. Has anyone seen 'The Little Mermaid'? Like the kitchen where the chef is trying to cook the crab. It's amazing the picture I get.
I see it pretty vividly too! I can see the torn wallpaper all old and yellowed with a brown vertical flower pattern. And yes lots of wood everywhere! But I see it taking place in the living room not the kitchen.
I got the Monty Python DVD set for Christmas and I noticed in one of the sketches they make reference to Crippin. "Yes but they said Crippin was insane" "Crippin WAS insane" "Oh, well there you have it then."
This is a very good Song. That gives me the creeps The Chorus is odd but also very recognisable. I see a young maid in a cellar who is preparing for suicide...because I hear the German words which mean, that she will maybe (?) die... More of that German stuff hehe.
